Abstract

This paper proposes a predictive control method for automotive engines with variable valves. The control purpose is to track not only the torque reference but also the pressure reference of the surge tank in consideration for the constraint of internal exhaust gas recirculation ratio. The control inputs are the throttle angle and the intake valve lift, however, the proposed control method is based on a flow model where the mass flows through the throttle and the intake valves are regarded as the virtual control inputs. The controller designed for the SICE benchmark engine is validated by numerical simulations.
